headers ={
'Authorization': 'basic <access token>',

payload = json.dumps({
number:version number},
'title':'title of existing page',


<th><p><strong>Remarks</strong></p></th></tr><tr><td><p>DRLT</p></td><td><p>Drogas Lithuania</p></td>

<td><p>i want to update data here from csv file</p></td>

<td><p>csv data</p></td>

<td><p></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>branch</p></td><td><p>csv data</p></td>

<td><p>csv data</p></td>

Hello @Ratnala Preethi,

If your company uses our Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app, you may use its Table from CSV macro.

It may not be exactly your case, but it is possible to output data from a URL, and you won't need to manually refresh a CSV file (you will just need to refresh your Confluence page for the data from CSV to be actual).

Best regards,


Thank you @Alexey Mikhaylov _Stiltsoft_  for your response

My page have some text and tables, But I need some clarification on that we need to put whole page layout in python script to add this csv data into tables. do we?

what I'm actually doing now is I convert csv data into lists then add it to string value of my page layout like below 


'value' = 'This is the confluence page...........

  Do you have an idea to put directly that csv data to particular table without mention whole page layout in script.

Hello @Ratnala Preethi,

our Table from CSV macro is for the cases when you need to build a specific table based on a CSV file from a URL or an attached file. Restoring the whole page with layouts and additional data is not covered by this macro.
